GHC to expand footprint in north of England


Investment management specialist GHC Capital Markets Limited (GHC) has appointed David Rowley as Northern Regional Relationship Manager. Rowley will work to promote GHC’s services to Independent Financial Advisors (IFAs) based in the North of England, as the company seeks to capitalise on increased demand for their services from IFAs who are preparing for changes following the FSA’s Retail Distribution Review (RDR).

Rowley joins GHC with over 25 years of experience in financial services, including 16 years as an IFA running his own practice.  During his time as an IFA, Rowley campaigned hard to simplify client communications, striving to remove much of the jargon and mystique embedded in the financial services community.  His company was often cited as a New Model practice.
He is best known for his work around change management with IFAs around changing their practices for RDR readiness and is a regular speaker at conferences and events for Service Providers, Fund Management Groups and Insurance Companies.
"Well before the Retail Distribution Review, GHC have been extolling the virtues of an outsourced investment management function for IFAs," says Rowley. "I have also been particularly impressed by their approach to managing client risk.  These core differentiators attracted me to the role and I am thrilled to be joining a progressive firm at a time of change within the industry.  I look forward to helping them increase their presence in the North of England.”
Gary Rusby, Head of Sales & Marketing for GHC Capital Markets, says: “David is a highly-regarded figure within the industry and has been rightly recognised for his work in promoting change management and innovative new business models. GHC has experienced increased demand from IFAs for our investment management services and David’s knowledge and relationships in the North of England will help us satisfy that demand.”
